Why Read This Report

In 2017, we'll see a new level of maturity in the enterprise wearable arena, with fewer pilots and more deployments in areas like smart glasses, virtual reality (VR), health monitors, and other categories. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders need a strategy for equipping employees with wearables (business-to-employee [B2E]) to drive productivity and operational excellence and a second strategy for driving interaction innovation with digital customer experience (business-to-business-to-consumer [B2B2C]). This report lays out the terrain that I&O must travel to succeed with enterprise wearable technology. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We're now updating it with data, insights, and examples for 2017.
